Well, if you update the distribution then you might have problems but if 
you do an apt-get to update a package or even all packages you'll be 
fine. I'm running Vinux 5 on Ubuntu 14.04 and I update all of my 
packages all of the time, but I stick with Ubuntu 14.04. When I'm ready 
to upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04 or later then I'll just preserve my home 
directory and do a clean install.
